5 Years of WOLF house
This week marks the 5th anniversary of the completion of the WOLF HOUSE. While Wolf Architects was already a well-established brand for residential work it was the WOLF house that put us on the map as the Dream Home Architects. As a showpiece house it was the spring board that propelled the practice to compete against the best and biggest brands in the nation for contemporary residential architecture.
While award winning and widely published both locally and abroad the WOLF house has always remained humble in our opinion and we describe it to our clients as a “standard” home. With our category V as the ultimate dream homes, the “Standard” sits at category II. However, there is nothing standard about the WOLF “Standard”. Five years on this house continues to marvel and inspire. While the landscaping is now well-established, internally the house still feels as fresh and new as it was when completed. For the occasion of our 5th year anniversary we have chosen to celebrate the finer intimate details which may be less noticeable at first but continue to provide subtle pleasure throughout and represent the high standards of all WOLF homes.
Our search has brought forward 10 never before seen images that we felt both represented fine detailing and thoughtfulness.
